of president obama in introducing hagel and announcing his nomination is that hagel has a particular unique experience in the military as an enlisted ground pounder. one who fought the war in vietnam and as the president pointed out still carries shrapnel in the chest. twice wounded, two purple hearts. he has as the president said understands the consequences of war so he would be less likely than some previous secretaries in this job to commit troops to war that some might consider unnecessarily. now, i'll take a little bit of exception in my colleagues at first read who claim that the president chose him because hagel could not be intimidated by the generals. i have not covered any secretary of defense who is intimidated by the generals. they take the best advice from the military leadership and they, in turn, walk arm and arm over to the white house, give it to the president and that's where those kinds of decisions are made. but i can tell you, one of the biggest challenges facing chuck hagel if, in fact, he is confirmed by the senate, is this budget battle. not necessarily here in the

obama prepares to hold a news conference minutes from now live from the white house. good day. i am andrea mitchell live in washington where we are awaiting hamid karzai and president obama who will be addressing reporters in the east room following their meetings on the pace of the u.s. troop withdrawals. one big disagreement? the white house suggestion this week of a zero option, a withdrawal of all u.s. troops after 2014 leaving no residual force at all, but, first, the big domestic issue here at home. what to do about gun violence. the white house is pushing back hard on suggestions that they do not believe they can win a ban on assault weapons, and are focussing on other options. in fact, a senior administration official tells me within the hour that an assault weapons ban and background checks are both going to be in the final set of proposals that go to the president despite all reports to the controversy. the nra president who met with vice president biden yesterday is drawing a hard line on assault weapons. >> we don't think that a ban on so-called assault weapons, which ha

. it is the reason president obama has been able to punch his responsibility and blame congress. the only message i come leave you with is yet again to how i started, is it acceptable to clear people for release and don't release them? we can push on that one and make that the biggest message for the administration, it and congress and when we meet again in a year we will have some progress so thank you. [applause] >> i am going to stand up and talk because it makes me feel taller and seek more people. i had no idea what i was going to say because i had to be inspired by a moat and andy worthington, with come again and nothing happens and it is so depressing. i am actually now i realize this is an opportunity because guantanamo is off the map. used to be the day we first took this on where we could do interviews and people would interview, now you can't even get a story in the newspaper about guantanamo. this is an opportunity to talk about it again and icy c-span is here so let me say something and it is going to be with you all said. first of all i think it should be clear to everyone, not only p

, but the battle really is not lost. the american government, the obama administration's trying to do what it can to stabilize things, but it's lost a lot of influence with iraq with the departure of american forces, one thing the american forces did give the united states was more clout inside iraq. >> talk about the release of a man accused of killing american soldiers, this issue that you write about in your book, the end game, but also news that came out in november about the relief of ali musa; is that correct? >> guest: yeah. well, there's a number of events that i think worked against american interests in iraq, and the case you cite is one of them. he is not an iraqi. he's a lebanese-hezbollah operative who was sent into iraq at the best of the iranian's cud force because hezbollah is supported by iran for the purposes of training shiite militias fighting american troops. he was captured by leaders in a raid conducted by the brits in which there was an american presence held in detention by the united states, but then under the status of forces agreement, he was handed over to the iraqis.

obama's negotiations with the g.o.p. remind me of how i used to give the bully my lunch money so he would start liking me. how is obama going to fight back in the second term? and if american police against baseball's steroid, there would be no crisis. and jimmy page is 68 today. join baez is 72, and richard nixon, who probably had dirt on both of them. this is "viewpoint." [ ♪ theme music ♪ ] >> john: good evening, i'm john fugelsang. thank you so much for joining us this evening. president obama's second term could be more ambitious than his first when he had the biggest financial crisis since the great depression to manage, two foreign wars to wind down and the largest social insurance expansion since medicaid pushed through congress. the newtown connecticut massacre that claimed 28 lives last month has put gun control on top of the white house and the vice president joe biden said that they were not going to stop there. >> there are executive orders and executive action that can be taken, we haven't decided what that is yet. but we're compiling it with all the help of the at
